Yeah, I would just wait until you’ve made the money and then quit. I mean really? They can’t give you that little time off? That’s ridiculous. Especially if they promised it to you before you started. Maybe remind them of that if you don’t want to quit? If you’re just doing it to pay for the honeymoon, do just that and find another job when you’re back.

I understand where you’re coming from. I’ve had a lot of similar experiences.

@Luxuryshoegal88: Uh, I would have looked at my manger, said “uh huh”, then quit when I wanted to. How is she to hold your wedding hostage after hiring you with your upfront information. She broke the terms of the hiring agreement. You are under no obligation to follow through. Hint: Start looking for a new part time job to begin with a start date AFTER you return from your honeymoon!

I definitely know where you are coming from. I would stay until you made the extra cash, then quit. An employer such as the one you are working for is not worth the headache!

Uh, yeah… I’d totally just work up till the wedding and quit.  A PT job is not worth adjusting your honeymoon and wedding over.  Especially when they told you that you’d have the 10 days in the first place!  Boo.  If you want to have a PT job after the wedding/honeymoon, you should start looking for a different job about a month before the wedding.. and if you find one tell them that your start date will be whenever your honeymoon ends.  Honey take your 10 days and enjoy your honeymoon.

You will really regret it in 10 years if you shorten your honeymoon to accomodate a part time retail job. I say no.

Tell them why you are quitting when you quit and they may have a surprise change of heart.

Anyhow, what a cow!

If you work untill the wedding and then quite don’t expect a good job reference from there.

@Miss Pinup: I dont think I’d be too worried as long as I was honest about why I had to leave.If she is a good hard worker they should not have any issue giving her a reference, people have all sorts of reasons for needing to leave their jobs, getting married is not too much of an unusual one I am sure.

Honestly they cant be serious about asking her to work around them for her wedding, I mean its ONLY her WEDDING and honeymoon, this place must have real illusions of their own importance to request such a thing lol.

@futureMrsMoore: It doesn’t sound like she was going to be honest, that is all. If she is upfront from the begining that is understandable and I am sure they will give her a great reference but if she just quits when she has the money she needs that is not really ok.

I understand why she would be angry and her employer, I was just stating a fact she might like to take into consideration in case she was thinking of taking another retail job.

@Miss Pinup: I disagree with this, there is no rule that you need to give notice, or a reason for leaving.  Jobs don’t give you notice, so you don’t have to either. But if they ask, you can just be honest and tell them that’s why you are leaving

Yeah, I’d just wait until it was time for the trips and quit. It’s a part time job you don’t ever need to put on a resume if you don’t want. If he doesn’t want to bend a little, just leave.

@MrsSl82be: Then laws here in Australia must be very different to the laws in the US, as here notice is required in regards to termination of contract by employee or employer– it is two weeks notice for all permanent staff. Also, an employer can not fire an employee for no reason, that is unfair dismissal and is illegal.

I’ve worked as a retail Groomsmen, and as long as you gave me your 2 week notice, I’d give you a positive reference/recommendation.  In retail, PT positions have a high turnover rate, so I doubt your manager will be surprised by your departure.  Just give him/her the courtesy of having enough time to hire a replacement 🙂  Enjoy your honeymoon, and don’t sweat it!

I would call the HR department for your company and let them know that you were hired on with the understanding you would be taking 10 days for your wedding and now you are being told you can’t. See what they say.

I had the exact same situation happen to me and I just about lost it because my honeymoon was booked and paid for and I really need my job (even if it is part-time). I ended up calling HR and they laughed at the thought of my manager telling me no to my wedding vacation. I got the time I wanted off plus they offered to let me take a few extra days if I wanted.

Hopefully your company will be more understanding!
